How Can They Do That? NLDS/ALDS Tickets Available Online Before Races Decide
Online ticket brokers and resellers have enabled fans to purchase ALDS and NLDS Tickets even before the races are finalized. How is this possible? And is it legal?
PR9.NET September 29, 2010 - With the Cincinnati Reds clinching the National League Central Division, two of the four National League Playoff slots have been filled, but tickets are available online for five National League teams. A simple search for NLDS Tickets will turn up sites like 241denver.com (a ticket site linked to goodseatsavailable.com) which features National League and American League Division Series Tickets. So, how is that ticket sellers have tickets before the teams have released tickets to the general public?
Just as with all season ticket holders, resellers who have purchased blocks, have those blocks available for fans to purchase before the box office is even open. These fans, or resellers, are a new breed of entrepreneur who buy sports tickets cheap and resell them for a small profit. Since they buy in bulk, they are given discounts over buying the seats for individual games. Shopping these brokerage houses of resale tickets enables fans to find affordable tickets in sections that may have previously been unaffordable. Resale sites like goodseatsavailable.com are particularly popular for sold out games because they may be the only place in town to find tickets.
There are those who claim that these sites are taking advantage of unsuspecting fans desperate for tickets, but the fact is that sports, concert and theater tickets have become a commodity. Savvy buyers can purchase hundreds of tickets for a particular sports event and resell the tickets all over the world for a fifteen to twenty percent profit. Is that a crime? Very few business people sell a commodity for the same price that they paid for it. Sporting events like the National League Division Series are a once in a lifetime opportunity for many fans, and therefore, people will spend whatever the market will allow. This makes sports tickets a good investment.
There's nothing illegal about buying or selling pre-sale tickets from any of these legitimate sites, however, it is a good idea to shop around and get the best deals. You could save up to a hundred dollars a ticket just by being smart. Most resellers offer overnight or two day shipping with e-tickets being made available only on the day of the game. Check your terms and conditions for limitations and guarantees and always check your tickets to make certain that they are the tickets you ordered. These sellers are reputable businesses in good standing with most business rating agencies, but you have to be smart. If you find front row seats behind home plate listed for four dollars it's probably a misprint. Find the best deal you can and enjoy the game. It's time for fall baseball.
